Today I start a new job, I lost mine back in October and was starting to feel hopeless. All of the work I had been looking for were office related, apparently around here the line is a mile long for jobs like these. I am not one to sit around without a job so last week I applied at a machine shop that is very close to home (3miles) not really thinking I would get it..surprise I did, and it pays way above min wage..way above the jobs I went to college for. Today I will be learning to run a CNC machine..I have never done anything like this before..I am the only new person, who happens to be a girl in a shop of mostly men..but I'm gonna give it my best shot (even though I am terrified) There are jobs out there..but you just might have to go from a clean job to a dirty one..anything is better than sitting at home on unemployment..it has to be....I hope...
I'm 17 and I really want to get a job, but I don't think it will work out because I am very shy. Nobody wants a shy person. I'm slowly trying to be more loud, but it's not helping.
